That does sound nice. TR Motorsport C2s are in the same range...IMO they look a little better (though they are about 1 lb heavier/wheel). Wouldn't 265s be a bit wide for a 8.5" wheel?

I have been watching Urban Outlaw and other clips of Magnus Walker's Porsches. Nothing sounds like those air cooled 911s. I didn't care much for them before but now I really want one

Yea, I meant to say 255. I also think that a 265 might be too big.

255's are pretty beefy





I would probably need some 5-10mm spacers all around, though.

Indeed they are beefy. Should be nice, is this going to be a track set or regular DD set?

Cool, yeah good tires make a world of difference. I'm thinking of switching to RS3s for next season since they are significantly cheaper than what I've been running (Star Specs). I love the Star Specs though...they are so responsive.

Yea, RS3s are so cheap, especially in 17". 255/40/17 is less than $150/tire
